Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Gwen and Kian…such a great story.  Kian is a Demigod who is pretty much just done with secrets. Gwen is a Guardian who had been fighting her whole life.  She is tasked with finding the son of someone who ends up being her mate!!  SAY WHAT.  She had given up on finding her mate so yeah shocker!!!!

Kian is not about to trust anyone given who his whole life of circumstance.  I mean he is manipulated, and pretty much just told flat out lies.  He doesn’t know who his dad is thanks to mommy dearest.  So when Gwen says they are mates he is less then thrilled at the news.  Plus can he trust this person since no one is every truthful about anything in regards to him.

This book is another great read in the series.  I enjoy each book and can’t wait for more from this author.

Award winning and bestselling author Valerie Twombly grew up watching Dark Shadows over her mother’s shoulder, and from there her love of the fanged creatures blossomed. Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper.

Book Cover

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Oh yes. This book I was ready for and excited for!!  Lucien and Elaina!!  Whoop Whoop!!  I will say this book is listed as a stand alone but in my opinion, you need to read the whole series to fully love and appreciate this book.  But you can read it alone but trust me you will be mad and wanna kick your butt because this series is awesomeness!!  Just read the whole series, OK? OK!

Lucien…I have loved him so I was happy to finally get his story.  He has some dark secrets and then to find out his mate…ya know the love of his life is HER…and she is one of THOSE…ugh struggle bus time.  But dude is all about claiming his woman!!

Elaine is dying because how can the fates match her with him.  I mean he is hawt and the chemistry is awesome but ugggghhhhhhhh he is a vampire!!  She is not feeling it, buuuut she wants to feel it *wink*.  Crass yes I am aware. LOL

The couple have a lot to overcome like the fact they should not be matched together given the history of their kinds.  They also have this whole “what happens if” thing hanging over their heads.

I absolutely enjoy this series and many others by this author.  She does a great job bringing you in and leaving you hanging for the next book.  I cant wait for more and the world she brings alive each novel.

The Vampire's Fae (Beyond The Mist)

An ancient vampire

For nearly two thousand years, Roman has waited for fate to bring him his mate. After he’s finally given up, she enters his life at the worst possible moment. The demon living inside him threatens to surface, and if he can’t keep it at bay, it may destroy everything in his path. Including her.

A fae princess

When a tragic accident causes Harper to gain a strange ability, she assumes her life can’t possibly get any worse. A camping trip is supposed to help the EMT clear her mind, instead it sends her into another reality where in a single day, she learns that vampires and fae are real. To make matters worse, her real father stakes his claim.

Destiny has chosen

Harper walks a thin line between what she once thought to be absolute and her new reality. One wrong step could destroy those she holds dear and ignite an age-old war. Roman falls under a powerful spell, and the one who wields the magic wants the demon inside him to kill his mate. Fate may have decided the two belonged together, but it never promised for how long.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

What a world!!  I love the paranormal worlds Valerie build’s in her stories.  Each series is different and unique with something that I think makes them stand out from others.  This series is no different.

Harper is a mess having dreams about tall dark drink of water plus all of a sudden she is healing people…uhm she is a human so what’s up with this new turn of events??  She had a terrible car accident but now she can heal herself and others….hrmmmm.  While taking a much-needed self-care weekend away to right her anxious mind she stumbles into someone hot as hell AND looks just like Mr. Dream Guy in a field.

Roman is stunned that some human has broken through the veil to his world.  How in the world has this happened and who sent her to his world?  Is she a threat?  Is she going to hurt his king? And DAYUM she is fine!!  Roman is struggling to keep his “beast” at bay.  (Remember when I said I loved how unique her series is…that story line is why….).  When Roman figures out WHO Harper is, he is so confused.  With his friend Storm AKA Harpers long lost cousin, they try to figure it out.

While Roman is struggling with his beast, Harper is struggling with finding out her dead dad isn’t so dead annnnnd he is kinda a dick…like major dick.  Harper is thrust into a new world with enemies, rules, sides, and gifts she needs to understand to fully navigate without losing her life, her mom’s life, or her mate’s life.

Seriously I loved Harper and Roman’s story!!!

Savage – Kill or Die

Nina Hardwick has had a rough life since leaving high school, but inside she is still the girl looking for a silver lining. The past several years have left their toll on her psyche, and just as she feels like she’s climbing out of a deep abyss, her life and the lives of millions of others fall into shambles as a virus overtakes the country and leaves a plague of undead armies scouring the land.

In a desperate attempt to get away from the infected, Nina and some neighbors speed out of town, nearly killing a man on a motorcycle. When they stop to rescue him, Nina realizes that he is the one man from her past she never got over, the guy who should have been her high school sweetheart until she messed it up. But this unrequited love, Kevin Savage, says he doesn’t even remember her. Or does he?

Nina, Kevin, and her neighbors head to the wilderness and fight to survive not only the plague but also hunger, cold, their inner demons…and even each other. Will they survive and, more importantly, will her heart?

Zombie Queen –

The beginning…
The beginning is always the best place to start when reflecting on what has been.
Thinking back on it, my life had been perfect.
Middle class girl in high school with a happy home life.
My life had been full of nothing but promise.
Life was good.
Everything was great.
And then my whole world went to shit. In one day.
The disease came first.
Then the dead.
It was a fight for my life every single day from the start. But I was different from all the rest.
I had heard my mother’s screams while watching my sister become one with the undead. All the while feeling like there was absolutely nothing I could do to help them.
It killed me.
What’s more, it changed me.
I did everything I possibly could to survive on my own.
And then I learned how to survive with others.
By being their Queen.
Their Zombie Queen.
And by being the most feared woman they ever came in contact with.

Flesh, book 1 by Kylie Scott

From Book 1: Ali has been hiding in an attic since civilization collapsed eight weeks ago.

When the plague hit, her neighbors turned into mindless, hungry, homicidal maniacs.

Daniel has been a loner his entire life. Then the world empties and he realizes that being alone isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Finn is a former cop who is desperate for companionship, and willing to do anything it takes to protect the survivors around him.

When the three cross paths they band together; sparks fly, romance blooms in the wasteland and Ali, Daniel and Finn bend to their very human needs in the ruins of civilization.

Lust, love and trust all come under fire in Flesh as the three battle to survive, hunted through the suburban wastelands.

Ground Zero book 1 by Nikki Landis

From Book 1: Stay quiet. Don’t look back. And never, ever scream.

The city has fallen . . . where will you run?

Before the world went to s*** and the zombie apocalypse wreaked havoc on the nation …

The Fourth of July is one hell of a spectacular celebration and just so happens to be ground zero when a group of friends are suddenly confronted with over 400,000 flesh-eating and newly turned zombies right in the heart of downtown Columbus, OH.

Red, White, and Boom will never be the same …

Uprising book 1 by Valerie Twombly

From Book 1: This is a spin-off series and can be read as a standalone or, with the Eternally Mated series.

“We can’t fight evolution, only ride it out and hope the ending is in our favor.” Ryder Mattis

As a former Navy Seal, beating the odds is something Ryder excels at. However, the world has changed and his transformation into a vampire gives survival a whole new meaning. If that isn’t enough to ruin his life, a plague unleashes utter destruction on humanity. He knows he has what it takes to protect those who survive even if they don’t like his rules. What he doesn’t count on is a female with stormy eyes and a will to live getting under his skin.

Kayla has lost everyone she loves to the red death. Surviving the plague is one thing, but a vow made to her dying father puts her under the protection of a predator. Surprised at how her body reacts to Ryder when he feeds, she has a hard choice to make. But when tragedy strikes and forces the vampire to give her his blood, she morphs into something no one could ever predict.

The new world doesn’t come with a handbook and when fate brands them as potential mates, they are not prepared. They can either battle each other, or band together in a fight for survival. The future holds no guarantees, but being alone might be worse than death.

Captured book 1 by H.R. Savage

From Book 1: I was raised in a world full of more death than life, surrounded by the blood-curdling violence and nauseating stench of zombies. And twenty years after the Outbreak, it doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon.

After a devastating loss rocks my little group of survivors, I’m forced to venture out of my comfort zone in an attempt to find help—straight into the impenetrable walls of El Castillo.

But The Knights don’t take kindly to my mission, and when their leader, Gunner, captures me, everything spirals out of control. My captor suddenly becomes my ally as we’re thrust into a war of Gunner’s own making.

A war that threatens not only his people, but my own.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given the ebook from the author for an honest review.

I have been so excited to read this book!!!  EEEP!  I mean Aidyn who is also the Phoenix finally is going to claim his mate..ya know the one who flat out hates him and totally tried to kill him by stabbing him in the heart…yeah that chick!!

This story has a little bit of all our favorite characters.  We see Aidyn and Katie bonding to bring back the homelands.  We see Baal and Ranata helping Leria.  Seeing Marcus and Cassie made me so happy.  I mean everyone was there!!!

Aidyn knows claiming his mate is going to be no easy feat. He knows she hates him because he refused her a favor once when she was little.  The sting of that has never been forgotten even if she knows why.  Aidyn will do anything and everything to get her to open her heart to him and accept him like her dragon has.

Leria is so confused.  Her dragon is making her nuts wanting to be claimed by the Phoenix but her heart wont allow it.  She is broken over what Aidyn did and can’t forgive him.  When the story gets going, we see Leria trying to prove she can lead without a mate but at the same time not knowing what Aidyn is doing for her trust and love.

This story is a great addition to anyone who has been following the story.  I was loving it and couldn’t believe how fast I flew through the story.

He was promised redemption, but it wasn’t what he bargained for. Decker has everything a man could want in life. That is, until a demon named Arsenia decides to turn him into a vampire. With his life left shattered, the ex-Navy Seal is forced to make a deal with an archangel. The Red Death has spread across humanity and his new abilities are needed to help those who survive. All he has to do is complete the biggest mission of his life, then redemption will be his.

All that is gone when the plague hits. Emma finds herself scared and alone with one tiny survivor. Rescue is a welcome relief, that is until she finds herself longing for a man who promises to break her heart.The rule book has been tossed aside in this new world. The plague continues to change, and no one knows what the next wave will bring. Emma believes her and Decker belong together and she’s willing to fight for a chance at love. However, he has no desire to travel that path again. Emma is changing and without her fated mate, she may not survive. History appears to be repeating itself, but this time Decker has a chance to alter its course. If only he can face his demons.


Goodreads


I receive this book from the Booksprout for an honest review.

I love this series!!!  I have been waiting for Decker’s book because he just kinda called to me in the last book.

Decker is a hard nut to crack. Given his history with love and loss you can totally understand why he fights his feelings for Nurse Emma.  He does not want to go through that again.  Emma is the sweet but sassy spitfire who will not be bossed around by Decker.  I love her fire and tenacity when it comes to telling this man what is what.

The story of Decker, Ace and Emma having a love triangle was something I didn’t see but then I wonder HRMMM About Ace and who his mate might be!!!?????  I am hoping he is the next book???  But maybe it is Mr. Mysterious Wolfe or even Shade.  Either way, I am down the read it!!

I loved the gifts that we soon learn Emma has.  I think that is one of the things I love about this story.  The women are just as essential as the men in solving the Red Plague.  The gits the women are given when they become mated are perfect for the male but for helping the survivors.  Emma’s gift was pretty cool plus I loved the addition of Jag to help Emma.

This series is always changing and throwing new twists in which make everything so much more insane in the post apocalypse world.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion


When a vampire has to kill his mate over 300 ears ago he doesn’t want another he work fine on his own and when the gods tell him, he is going to be mated again and with a human none the less Marcus refused to let it happen. Cassie was afraid she would never find love again after her last break up, one night about with friends she feels this strange pull and when she looks over her shoulder this tall and mysterious man was heading her way. Neither Marcus or Cassie could explain this feeling they just knew something wasn’t right and at this point she also didn’t know that he was a vampire. Strange things will happen Marcus’s secret will be exposed and hot sweaty love will be made. This book is fu of ups, downs and loyalty that only vampires and guardians can do when it comes to fighting demons and protecting humans and immortals alike. This books did take me a while to get into but one i did wow it was hard to put it down.

When sexy Brooke walks back into his life, the firefighter puts up a wall of resistance that will keep him from making the same mistake twice. Problem is he loved her once, and she walked away. Now she’s asking for forgiveness and he’s not sure he can give it.

Being a mix of dragon and human presents its challenges. Even more demanding is Brooke’s shifter father who she can’t seem to say no to. When an unforeseen event forces her to run away from love, and back home to daddy, she doesn’t think she will ever see Reese again. Coming back to Kirkwood means facing what she left behind and questioning what her future holds.

Old emotions threaten to resurface, but things are more complicated than before. Reese can’t forgive and Brooke’s father demands she marries someone else. Trust and loyalty rip these two apart, but sometimes it only takes a spark to create a flame from ash and change destiny forever.

THIS BOOK IS A STAND ALONE STORY.

I received this book from the booksprout for an honest review.

I am such a huge fan of shifter books and I love a great dragon story so when I saw this book, I snagged it.

Reese is totally hating in women thanks to his awesome ex wife Megan…please not that is a full sarcastic sentence because she is totally not awesome.  To sleep with your husbands’ brother is kinda not cool…se why I say she is not awesome??  Any who, Brooke and Reese have some back story of a few nights of “friends with benefits” sleepovers.  Well in the past Brooke up and left which kinda made Reese a grumpy man yet again.  Seems he was falling hard for Brooke.

Brooke is a hot mess.  She is a half shifter annnd she finds out she is a very special half shifter.  She is the QUEEN Shifter and the legendary Dragon Shifter who everyone has been waiting for.  When Brooke’s dad finds out he decided she needed to marry a “proper” full blooded dragon.  EXCEPT, wellllll…….Brooke has gone and fallen in love with Reese too.

Those two have some serious communication issued however they sure can express themselves fine in the bedroom.  Well again, due to lack of communication, they have a falling out buuuut not before Brooke ‘s Dragon leaves Reese with a small parting gift…..wanna know? READ THE BOOK!!

Wanna know what else happens to Reese before he can try to claim his women??  WELP you gotta read the book people.  Seriously this book was a fast and great read.

Reese and Brooke are a great couple to read about and I loved their story immensely!!
